(Dr. Mercola) Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3), popularized by Arm & Hammer more than 150 years ago, is a staple in many homes for baking and cleaning purposes, but this inexpensive ingredient also has a number of medicinal uses and benefits. It rates right up there with hydrogen peroxide as one of the most inexpensive and safe health tools around, so it makes sense to learn all you can about the many uses of baking soda.
(Jessica Dolores) Many things aren’t what they used to be because of social media. We don’t talk to each other often anymore, because we’d rather check our mobile phones even if we’re seated at a table with friends and family. So everyone ends up reaching for their mobile phones as well.
(Isabelle Z.) Cardiovascular disease can be frightening, and it’s understandable that those who have it want to do everything in their power to keep it under control. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they need to take on the risks of prescription drugs. A study published in the American Journal of Physiology – Heart and Circulatory Physiology shows that supplementing with dietary nitrate from beetroot juice is a viable alternative.
(Vicki Batts) Essential oils are gaining in popularity, finally beginning to get much-deserved recognition for their health benefits. But with so many options, it can be hard to narrow down which oils are the best fit for your needs. And when you’re prepping a survival kit, less is often more — especially when space is limited. So, here is a short list of some great essential oils to select for your survival kit (and your everyday medicine cabinet, too).
(Tracy Watson) In virtually every avenue of science, things are changing and growing at an alarming rate – a rate that very few of us can keep up with. From human/animal hybrids to gene editing, scientists now hold the very foundations of life in their hands.
(Kalee Brown) Science is now catching up to the knowledge outlined in the Vedas, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and other ancient texts. For approximately 5,000 years people have been practicing meditation, proving the positive impact it can have on the body and mind. Science has now accepted that meditation can have powerful effects on human health, as more research is exposing these mind-blowing benefits. Some experienced meditators have even been referred to as “superhumans” because of how their practice has affected them (check out our article here). A study recently published in Translational Psychiatry proved just how beneficial meditation can be for human health, as the molecular signature of meditators was found to be significantly different from those who don’t meditate on a regular basis.
(Jessica Dolores) You’ll never know when disaster will strike. When it does, though, are you medically prepared to handle any type of situation?
(Dr. Mercola) Plastic has become an incredibly harmful convenience, now threatening environmental and human health alike, and in more ways than one. With Earth Day being tomorrow, there is no better time to analyze the impact bottled water has had on our planet. There’s the issue of bulk plastics in our landfills, where it will remain indefinitely since most plastic does not biodegrade,1 and microplastics — microscopic pieces of degraded plastic — which now choke waterways across the globe and contaminate drinking water and sea life.
(Jessica Dolores) People get depressed for a number of reasons: They feel someone they love has let them down; they lack friends and company; they’re in dire financial straits…the list can go on and on.
(Anna Hunt) There’s a growing body of scientific evidence that confirms the many benefits of meditation. These include improved cognitive function, stronger immune system, and lower stress and anxiety. Now, for the first time, scientists have discovered just how long we can expect some of these benefits to persist.
(Isabelle Z.) “You are what you eat” might be an overused phrase, but there’s quite a bit of truth to it, particularly when it comes to your brain. According to a paper published in the journal Physiology, the signals from your gut to your brain have a strong influence on your behaviors and emotions, especially during threatening events.
(Isabelle Z.) You’ve probably heard by now that antibiotics can seriously impact your gut microbiome, but it turns out that this action is not just limited to antibiotics. Now, scientists from Germany’s European Molecular Biology Laboratory have found that many drugs that target human cells rather than bacteria can cause changes in microbiome composition as well.
(Hope Girl) It’s clear that there are health effects associated with wireless radiation, and the problem will only get worse with the installation of 5G cell towers dotting our neighborhoods and communities. Our communities had no say as to whether they wanted the cell masts or not, yet the local councils erected them anyway. And not everyone can just ‘pack-up’ and move, so what are we supposed to do? You need to create a field of protection around your body and home. Did you know that there are EMF blocking paints and foams you can purchase that will absorb most of the incoming harmful radiation entering your home? Did you know that you can change the chaotic harmful fields coming into your home from 5G cell towers into beneficial energy? Properly constructed orgonite can do just that!
(Karen Berrios) I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” It seems that there are many situations in life that can be represented by this. One of which is the connection between gut health and thyroid health. A healthy gut supports a healthy thyroid, and vice versa. The reverse is also true: problems in the gut create problems with your thyroid health, and low thyroid function can create problems in your gut.
(Derek Henry) There have been many trends through the years for health enthusiasts, and although many of these ideas are half-baked, every once in a while one comes along that has some teeth to it and can actually legitimately change a person’s life.
